    Default Interesting relic I found in a box.

    Hi! As you may know, I'm from the DFW area and I like old trains and old railroading, so when I found this 1947 Union Terminal Company operating rulebook for Dallas, TX, I got excited. I dug a bit deeper and found a full map of the line around the station! What a goldmine! Maybe a future route coming? Here's some photos:

    WOW ! That's a great find alright . This would make a real nice yard layout to do for Trainz, and you've got the goods to it ! There might be a local Railroad museum or a train modeling club that would be interested in seeing that.

    Thumbs up

    Very impressive Switching puzzle (yard)

    I will say again, and again there is always this Print-less, Put in the Cloud idea, Paperless, save a Tree, Etc, and I get that and try to cut my use of finite resources around the globe.....

    However, there are some things that really resonate with this old Boy, I still like Original Manuals and Large Books that show how something was designed, looked, back in the day........

    Thank You for sharing the find.......
